. a arthroscopeut -- a microscope to the health- care law. in addition to what we have seen with kathleen sebelius and marilyn tavenner, they may want againr from the top brass as to whether they want to update their thinking on a law. we may get more big picture stuff in december. host: more about life on the hill. here is "the wall street journal." thatg the point immigration, tax reform, a budget breakthrough, things are on hold or frozen. what does it mean? guest: the affordable care act takes oxygen out of the room. it is so politically potent. it affects everyone's constituents. they are getting the most calls on it, too. it provokes strong feelings. the agenda has come to a standstill, there is evidence that some of these things were at a standstill already. the affordable care act, that is how you fill the vacuum at a standstill. over the summer, when immigration was a big topic. when it became clear that that was stalling, the affordable care act came back with a vengeance. that was the issue everyone wanted to talk about. there is some truth that it gets in the way of everything else. al
don't get paid for it. >> doctors are angry. kathleen sebelius says she doesn't work for the critics. 700,000 plus doctors don't work for you. >> yet you are being controlled by the rules and regulations. >> great point. a survey came out this week. 40% say they won't play ball with obama care. what choice do they have? >> they have to go to a cash business. >> if they can, they will. all cash businesses are on the way up. more concierge medicine. they can join a hospital, if the hospital is playing ball with with obama care. you might get to keep your doctor, but maybe not your hospital. fewer hospitals are accepting -- working with this insurance. >> you don't even know. i will tell the viewers. that our health care providers, our policies were cancelled here. we have to find a new policy. we have a new option. i called my physician and said do you take this insurance? no, no, no. i can't say it's due to obama care but it's a quince kens. haung. >> good to see you. >> "the kelly file" is investigating your obama care stories. maybe i just told you mine that's due to banl. i can't k
. yesterday we heard kathleen sebelius or just a short time ago today, she was in atlanta. did she give hints as to what they might be looking at or are they saying we're going to do this but don't know how yet? >> at this point they're not tipping their hand what they're going to be doing. sebelius only said to reporters in atlanta they didn't have a plan on the table at this point. they could have a plan in their drawer in their desk somewhere or floating around inside other offices inside hhs. they're not willing to talk about that at this point. there are various reports out there perhaps they're looking at expanding subsidies for people to obtain insurance on these exchanges. why would that happen? because if people are seeing their pols are being canceled and the only option that's available costs more money, then perhaps those expanded subsidies might be helpful. i have tried to ask a variety of officials over here at the white house as to whether or not that is the case. nobody is willing to confirm that, and of course, that may require some kind of legislation to expand those subsidi

people have a lot of thoughts, but i have some, too. kathleen sebelius made all kinds of promises, she's broken every one of them. she's become part of the fantasy land villains of disney world in some way. she can't get anything right. nancy pelosi said they're still looking through and trying to figure out what obamacare will be. but how about this guy, donald berwick? he's the former cms administrator. he was the guy that was speaking in favor of english, of british, of health care. he had written about the importance of rationing. he's not there anymore. now he's running for governor. he put us in the dumper big, big time. >> he wanted to be governor of what state? >> massachusetts, i think. >> perfect. >> be careful. not good. >> there is somebody we've seen on television tangling with megyn kelly a couple of nights. you suggest ezekiel emmanuel. >> he had a meltdown on megyn kelly and said that somehow it was a self-fulfilling prophecy and that fox was responsible for the web site not going up and the numbers not working out at all. >> how did we do that? >> how about dennis mcdo
if you have more -- administration like kathleen sebelius do the same, i think the american people would give them more leeway to fix the problem and get things working correctly. >> host: president obama departs the white house shortly, heading to cleveland. he will be speaking about the economy. visiting a steel manufacturing company in cleveland. then off to philadelphia for some fundraising, democratic fundraising. francis is in philadelphia on our republican line. what do you think about what the president said? >> caller: i'm curious about the reporting, using the words, the president will allow." the president can't allow anything. he is not a dictator, and the insurance commissioners and the insurance companies still have a lot to say about this, and it's obvious what this is. it's an attempt to placate the people who have lost their insurance until the 2014 election, and that question was not asked. that's my thoughts. >> we'll show you the news conference later in our program schedule. here's "the wall street journal" wawrnl headline. i. i white house to allow insurers to

. host: kathleen sebelius. caller: yeah. it embarrasses me. i want to kind of change parties, but my grandfather, father, everybody in my family is a republican. they always have been. i'm kind of ashamed of them. the only republican i like now is john boehner, and i used to like paul ryan, but every time i see paul ryan, like the clip you had earlier i watched, paul ryan reminds me of john boehner. they are kind of the same. i used to think they were both the smartest republicans. i liked them the most. but they just don't understand with the latino votes, it will never be high for them ever, and i don't think they have a high african-american vote, they do white peoplene blow, they have the crazy white people blow. i can see where the -- people vote. i can see where they're going down. they have always needed to go moderate. if they have gotten moderate from the beginning and not gotten in talks with the tea party -- host: you might be interested in a piece on the cover of politico's new magazine, the cover story is locked in the cabinet -- the worst job in barack obama's washingto
. obviously the blame starts at the top with the president and kathleen sebelius. this looks like a systemic breakdown. looks like you just can't point at the people at the very top. there's a lot of people up and down the food chain that failed miserably on this. >> it is systemic. it goes to the heart of the democratic party argument an argument that the government can do a lot of good things really well. if we can't get this right it under mines that entire argument. >> an argument you've said very publicly, in this case you support it. >> do i. >> you want this for personal reasons, not for professional reasons, you want this to work for personal reasons and there are millions of people like that, which makes this all the more, all the more just unbelievable to people who believe that the government can do big things and do it well. >> it's not just a personal thing. i have two older daughters who have been able to take advantage of obama care. but i think any american, whether you're a small government conservative or big government liberal or like most of america you just want governm
